JOE SMITH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Street, Smith 'adamant' about pitching fourth straight day

Huston Street and Joe Smith pointed at one another, playing a game of "Not It," prior to the Angels' 2-1 win over the Yankees on Tuesday night. With each having pitched in three consecutive games, would either Smith or Street be unavailable to come out of the bullpen Tuesday?  "I said I wasn't down, and he said he wasn't down, or he said he wasn't down, so I wasn't going to be...

Questioning Joe Smith’s 2014 season

Joe Smith was the reliever with the pedestrian name but the excellent numbers in 2014. Despite a very impressive year, Smith still appears to be flying under the radar.

The general sabermetrics stance on...

Angels reliever Joe Smith takes injury of Kole Calhoun tough

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- At this point, you could take your pick. Which member of the Angels bullpen would be the next to relinquish a lead? You could go down the list.

Yet, on Tuesday night...
